Screwing into drywall - no studs
I guess my question is similar to jcorban.
I just bought a couple shelves that I would like to put up on a side kitchen wall.
We went to screw them in and they went into nothing...nothing to catch behind it.
We looked for studs and found them in places that wouldn't work for the position of the shelf.
(we also tried a small nail in one just to see what was there and the nail went through too...!?)
Then we tried using those drywall plastic things, that aare supposed to open like a flower and stop the screw from coming out...that didn't work either. Either went straight through the wall or didn't open up...etc.
What can I do to hang a shelf there? Anything?
What could I use?
Any help is so appreciated...I've never run into this before.
